Johanna Mason is a girl from District 7 who won the Seventy-First Annual Hunger Games at seventeen-years-old. During the pre-Games preparations, Johanna pretended to be weak and useless to fool her fellow tributes into thinking she would be an easy kill. When the Games reached the final ten, however, she stole an ax and proceeded to murder four other tributes, winning the Games. She is very popular in the Capitol as a result of her strategy, and she is seen as the gold standard for manipulating the competition. After her Games, she became close friends with both Finnick Odair and Haymitch Abernathy.
